Out of Joint

foggy in the lobby
bloody mess
amazed at the maze

patrons stealing names
gate-crashing reservations
no-one checking id’s

flooding in the main hall
trending now

where’s the caviar, as advertised

in there somewhere
behind the whiskers
under the pile and up the creek
one paddle

in a corner
faux poets
on time
infant rhymes
for another boast
burnt toast
for connoisseurs

ignoble imitations
shooting fiction with a busted flash

Jesus hiding in each cupboard

cats and dogs
horses, hogs, even frogs
and another selfie
portraits in vanity

the pose is prose
rent a costume
charlatans bazaar

the court jester is lost
here is more fool than I

the world is out of joint

punked again
in a modern library
